Ok, so this “self-portrait” wasn’t intentional.  More of a surprise come photo editing time this morning.  But it got me to thinking.  Are there any singletons reading this post?  If you are, you likely have experienced the occasions when you are out and about with your camera and are asked from passers-by to take group photos, or those charming couple shots.  I personally don’t mind a bit (and hopefully my shots of these folks have been decent…).  But it can be hard to get a good photo of yourself, say for your Facebook profile.  You are left with finding reasonable facsimiles.  Or…finding creative ways to place yourself in a photo and apparently reflective surfaces are a good place to start.  As long as you don’t mind that one of your eyes looks a lot like a camera…

Here’s some more shots from my New Year’s Day 2010 Adventure.  If you would like to see the works, go to:  http://pattihenderson.smugmug.com/Travel/January-Adventures-2010/10825194_D7nAa#755338763_rWpWH  and someday I will learn how to properly put a link in this blog.  Tips welcome!
